“I remember that time we sat on the couch and spent the whole day coming up with our own secret language that we continued to speak every time we saw each other. I wish we could go back there. I wish we were still talking in sentences that probably annoyed everyone else but made us crack up every time," the model reminisced.

"I wish I was still sitting on my bathroom floor FaceTiming you, because that was the only place I had wifi and I never wanted to miss a call from you," Kaia continued.

Ending her heartfelt tribute, she said, "Thank you for being the reason for so much laughter and happiness in the world. It won't be the same without you here. I love you Daniel."
